Shopping: Avon & Mark

As an Avon independent sales representative, I get 10% off regular price on all products, but sometimes, they have some really great deal exclusive to reps, like this Mark starter kit that I got for only 18$ (it's worth 63$):

Snap To It Mezzo Custom Color Palette, including:
  • Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in after glo
  • i-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in nomadic
  • i-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in cake
Scanda-Lash Hook Up Mascara in blacklash, Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lipgloss in peek-a-boo & a hook up connector

Mist Opportunity Multi-Tasking Refresher kiwi/grapefruit

That's Deep Purifying Cleanser sugar maple/black willow bark

I was waiting for the perfect occasion to try Mark products because I think they are a little expensive (well, more than what I'm used to pay for cosmetics or skin care), & it came! One of my friend told me they have the best makeup products. I can't wait to try them!

Another purchase I made is the Anew Clinical Advanced Dermabrasion System.

I got it for a little less than 25$, but today I realized I could have bought it for only 15$... anyway. The original price is 35$, so when I was it finally on sale, I couldn't wait anymore! So basically, this thing has four different levels. You use it on wet skin, just like a scrub, but no more than 2-3 times a week, & you have to wait two days between applications. You start with level 1 for 2 weeks, then proceed with level 2,3 & 4 using each for 2 weeks. After level 4, you let your skin rests for 2 weeks, then re-start the whole thing. I read a lot of reviews on the Internet before purchasing this product & most of them where really positive. I've been looking for a dermabrasion system for a while now, so I decided to give it a try. I tried level 1 today. It's very soft, just a little rougher than a regular scrub. I'll keep you up with my progresses.


  1. I really like Mark! I love the shadows and blushes! The payoff is fantastic! You got such a good deal! Enjoy!!
